Boy, oh boy. Do I have a salad recipe for you!
The second batch of Holy Deliciousness Hummus is… delicious. I predict we’ll crush this tub in less than 24 hours.
- 2 cups raw packed spinach
- Four strawberries, sliced
- Four cooked and chilled beets, sliced
- 1/4 cup pepitas seeds
- 1/4 cup Holy Deliciousness Hummus
I squeezed in a 5K this morning. Thank goodness it was overcast because I didn’t leave until well past noon. It was a really relaxing run. Per some of your advice, I’ve changed the settings on my Garmin so I can’t look at pace anymore, and I must say – it’s awesome.
On my run, I was thinking about heel striking and my Vibrams – I haven’t worn my minimalist shoes in forever. I just fell out of the habit of breaking them in, you know? I’m going to rummage in my closet and find ‘em for a walk around the neighborhood later.
I really need to get my heel striking under control (here’s why). I kept trying to ‘retrain’ my gait while running in my regular sneakers, but the moment I stop thinking about actively correcting my heel striking, I revert back to my injury-inducing gait.
Maybe wearing my Vibrams more often will help? Thoughts on stopping the heel-striking habit?
Also – has anyone read Chi Running?
I’ve heard such good things about it and am looking for a great book on running form. Help save my heels!
